To find a more beautiful location and a more attractive home for a café, you would have to look for a long, long time. At Café Doppingen, located on the eastern shore of Lake Hornborga, in addition to impressive architecture and nature, high-quality meals and pastries also awaits you.


Café Doppingen is located on Fågeludden, near Broddetorp, right next to Naturum Hornborgasjön. The café was inaugurated in March 2017.

The building has been inspired by the locally building techniques with thatched roofs and stone walls. Here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Lake while having coffee or eating. 

The Café is run by Martina Molin, who also runs Villhelmsro Gårdscafé in Falköping. The Café serves various pastries and sandwiches. There are also several lunch options. 


At Café Doppingen, everyone is welcome! Inside the entrance, there is a section for those who want to bring their dog, and for those who prefer the fresh air, they can sit down at the outdoor seating on the terrace.

Both from the patio and from the inside of the café, you will have a wonderful view of the lake. The premises are handicap accessible. Read more about accessibility below. 


Café Doppingen is about 550 m² containing a café, office space and an auditorium for films, lectures and conferences. The building was designed by architect Sten Thorsén, PE Arkitekter in Skövde (formerly Arkitekturum AB in Mariestad). The building is appreciated for its beauty and received in 2022 a prize from Falköping municipality.

The airy and bright premises are characterised by Nordic materials. The architecture has its origins in Västergötland barns, with reed roofs and wood and limestone in the façade.

The building and land facility has been built by Asplunds Bygg AB in Skövde. The façade panel consists of roughly framed pine which over time will assume a light grey colour.

The thatched reed roof will darken and the building will gradually blend into nature more and more. The reeds were obtained from Poland. This is due to that reeds are not harvested any more in Sweden to any great extent. The roof has been laid by Söderslätts stråtak AB.

Dogs are welcome

Dogs are also welcome to Café Doppingen. There is a part of Café Doppingen where you can sit with your dog. On the stone floor close to the entrence your are welcome to rest your paws and are offered a bowl of water after the hike.
